President Trump declines to commit to a peaceful transfer of power, if he loses: "Get rid of the ballots and we'll have a very peaceful — there won't be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation." nbcnews.to/363ePLO

SEC Preseason Media Poll:
East champ: Florida
West champ: Alabama
SEC champ: Alabama
#LSU has been picked to finish second in the West and is tied with Georgia as the second team thought to win the SEC.
Sean Payton said the mask issue is something coaches are just going to have to remind themselves about. Said it's easy to lose track of something like a gaiter when it's just around your neck, but he'll figure out how to be more diligent with it.
“I think the rightful owner was the Benson family. There’s a lot of things they can do because they have the Saints and they’re a fabric of that community. It went to the rightful owner in my opinion.” twitter.com/cclark3000/sta…
Saints didn't hold a practice today so I assume any injury report that comes out would be estimated. I also feel like we could see Davenport return for practice this week, but we'll find out tomorrow I guess.
As we await #Pelicans coaching hire and put odds on usual suspects, here’s my crazy 😜 tweet of the day.
Following in footsteps of Nash/Nets - what if NOLA hired:
@paugasoll as head coach?
Assistants: Brian Shaw, Sergio Scariolo, Becky Hammon.

The NFL is fining the #Saints and #Raiders $250,000 each and coaches Sean Payton and Jon Gruden $100,000 each for failing to properly wear face coverings in the bench area Monday night, per source.
That brings the total to $1.75 million in total fines for violations in Week 2.

"And everybody was saying, 'New England is 2-2 now and is it time for Brady to retire?’ What’s he done since then, you know? Mic drop.” twitter.com/PatMcAfeeShow/…

The Clippers have been eliminated for a week now. I can't help but wonder where the market for Ty Lue as a coach really stands. From being the presumptive favorite in many places to silence. You could tell me he ends up with any team and I'd believe it.
A question on the minds of many was asked by @MikeTriplett to Drew Brees following the #Saints 34-24 loss to #RaidersNation
Is the star QB worried about a decline in his abilities after two lackluster performances to start the 2020 season?
